If you had a sick child, would you drop off that child without caring if it lives or dies and exchange it for a new child?

Once we adopt an animal, it becomes our responsibility to care for that animal to the best of our abilities and give it the best care possible as long as we can. Animals are not disposable nor are they collectibles simply because of their shorter lifespan or the fact that especially small animals are often marketed as "cheap" pets.

Even if to you your bird's life seems exchangeable, that little bird is depending totally on you for care and compassion. If you cannot take care of your budgie properly, you should rehome it to someone who can or is able to, and not consider getting another bird at this time.
